Sheltering Wings in Yako has been operating a elementary school since 2006. There are five classes of approximately 30 students each and the school runs from October until June each year. It is located within the courtyard of the Sheltering Wings compound in Yako but we are expanding. Sheltering Wings just recently recevied a gift from the town of Yako, a plot of land for school classrooms. In 2010 a 2 room classroom was built with the monies that had been raised. The land is a large site and we have room for many more classrooms. This year, 2012, we will open the doors of 4 additional classrooms that God has so richly provided for. We hope to build 4 classrooms every 2 years to accommodate the great need for classroom space and quality education of the children of Yako. Each classroom cost about $15,000 to build. Please consider helping to build a class room. On-line donations use secure PayPal.
